Publisher and Industry Authority Doug Finke
ORANGE COUNTY, Calif., Jan. 30, 2020 – HKA Marketing Communications, an award-winning integrated marketing communications firm, today announced its representation of Doug Finke, publisher of the Quantum Computing Report (QCR), a highly respected and influential global resource site for the quantum computing industry.
Based in Tustin, Calif., with more than four decades of technology industry experience, including stints at Intel, IBM, Western Digital and others during pivotal moments in their history, Finke established QCR in 2016 to provide timely commentary and analysis regarding the burgeoning quantum computing industry. Since then, QCR has become the most well-trafficked site in the world dedicated to quantum computing, delivering informed perspectives on the latest developments in the industry ecosystem, including startups, enterprises, venture capital firms, academic research and government entities.
QCR also features up-to-date listings of industry resources, including companies, conferences, training and education, and employment opportunities as well as links to software development tools.
“With foresight and passion, Doug designed QCR to be the ‘go-to’ resource site for the emerging quantum computing industry, and he has successfully met that high bar,” said Mike Kilroy, Group Director, Technology at HKA. “In recent months, the promise of quantum computing has gone mainstream and we are proud to add Doug to our growing list of industry clients to help further the development of this exciting new technology.”
A member of the World Economic Forum’s Global Future Council on Quantum Computing, Finke is an in-demand expert and consultant on quantum computing, providing counsel to investors and companies entering the field. HKA will provide strategic counsel, media relations and additional services to promote the QCR brand and Finke’s consulting services to the industry.
“HKA is a wonderful partner with the experience and expertise in evangelizing emerging technologies such as quantum computing,” Finke said. “I look forward to working closely with its technology practice to ensure the market clearly sees the value and possibilities of quantum computing.”
Quantum computing is a new approach to computing that uses the principles of quantum mechanical physics to perform certain calculations that are intractable for any classical computer to accomplish in a reasonable time period. When quantum computers attain the ‘quantum advantage’ of speed and accuracy beyond classical computers in the next few years, they are expected to enable significant breakthroughs in science, medicine, engineering, finance and more.
Finke also manages the Southern California Quantum Computing Meetup Group, offering presentations from experts on recent research and technical discussions for developers and enthusiasts. The next Meetup is set for February 24, 2020, at 6 p.m. at the Ayres Hotel in Anaheim.
